Skoda Diesel Claims VIN Checker
Skoda have set up a webpage to check to see if your car has been affected by the Skoda Diesel compensaiton “cheat software.” You may be aware that Volkswagen do own a majority stake in Skoda and thus any CO2 emissions claim for compensation will be through VW on behalf of Skoda or at least that is the likely route but this may change.
Skoda claim that the following vehicles are not part of the VW Scandal:
- New vehicles with EU6 engines currently available are unaffected
- All petrol models are unaffected
Skoda say that technical solutions are being developed and will be presented to responsible authorities before the end of October
